Not Our Expense

Oct 11, 2019

To the Editor:

We have a person who claims we need a skate park – something that was tried out several years ago and had to be closed down due to vandalism, perhaps because many of the skaters were from surrounding towns.

This request appears when we have a new administration, which appraises the cost at around $1.5 million.

Check our current 2019 budget with costs in the millions for township equipment and many other infrastructure improvements.

Years ago when the Walters Group was starting its developments, I can recall there being in the agreement not one but two skating rinks. What happened to that obligation? Considering the company’s property tax arrangement, perhaps it should be prepared to build the skate park with a top professional design.

The skate park should not be done at our expense.
